When it comes to Match Point (2005), Woody Allen’s luxurious yet cynical take on luck and lust, Matt and Ryan can agree on a score of love-love. We also imagine some extra crummy superpowers, think of ways to get Helen Mirren a Grammy, and hit up Jeff Bezos to fund Matt’s newest erotic thriller. All this and a tape reference on this episode of Ex Rated!

This week we take a deep dive into the bizarre yet intoxicating world of Guy Maddin with Cowards Bend the Knee (2003), a film about hockey, hand transplants, and so much more. We also discuss the number of Funcookers in the Oval Office, and Matt’s newest product, Jolt-In-Your-Junk. All this and a dance portion on this episode of Ex Rated! Now with 75% more horse anus!
You want tension? We’ve got crates of it! It’s William Friedkin’s often overlooked and horribly titled gem, Sorcerer (1977). Are people who work on Woody Allen films called wappers? Is Bubble Boy era Jake Gyllenhaal hot? Is the X-Files theme appropriate music for bath time? Answers ensue and suspense abounds on this episode Ex Rated!
For our first animated movie we chose the fun yet sophisticated musical romp The Brave Little Toaster (1987). Come along on a journey that includes Ryan imagining the saucy letters of Eleanor Roosevelt, Matt reminding the world of the text atrocity “CUL8R”, and a response to a listener who praised our most objectively boring conversation. It’s your favorite podcast about tape, Ex Rated!
John Hyams’ Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012) is more than just things going boom and people going punch. It’s an arthouse martial arts horror hybrid that also happens to be the subject of this week’s episode. Come along with us as we get heady about the action movie genre, tarnish Robert Hazard’s legacy, and imagine hammer-related hobo murder. Ex Rated: Call me The Colonel!
For this episode we watched Jonathan Glazer’s ambitiously ambiguous alien character study, Under The Skin (2013). We also brainstorm ideas for a biopic about a tyrannical president, take a stand on the subject of ScarJo, and coin the term The Schumacher Ceiling. Join us as we go full question mark on Ex Rated!
This week we take a look at Lodge Kerrigan’s rich and compact depiction of mental illness, Clean, Shaven (1993). Would footage of Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine accurately represent Ryan in his 20’s? Could Elaine Stritch Nutty Professor Matt’s biopic Tupac-style? The answers to these questions (along with some fingernail puns) are here, on this episode of Ex Rated!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Let’s talk about suicide! It’s Billy Wilder’s AFI-listed classic The Apartment (1960). Aside from the movie’s many merits we also discuss the ASFABAB typing system, Mildred Pierce 2: Vita’s Revenge, and Annette Bening’s costume fatigue. Who says romance is dead?
For this episode we voluntarily left the house to watch Juzo Itami’s light-hearted food-sex romp, Tampopo (1985). In addition, we ponder the fidelity of mallards, the consumer hustle of the tape industry, and the theoretical physical shape of a podcast. Come hungry, leave bloated. It’s a slurpy, burpy installment of Ex Rated!
